Abstract

Key Points

- Through communication skills development and training, street children and youth can learn to recognise their own knowledge and ability to inform others about street life.
- Engaging with stakeholders builds confidence, respect and self-worth, with positive aspects for young people’s daily lives beyond policy and practice.
- Listening to street children and youth can help governments and NGOs to improve the targeting and effectiveness of their services.
